    they could easily shed Cantor's $3B from their budget and still collect everything. :eyeroll: SHeeeeeesh!

    Sure, you want to be smart, but in the end, auditors DO have to go into the field. If there are no auditors, their level of training really doesn't come into the picture, now, does it?

    •  I don't think this comment is eye roll-worthy. (4+ / 0-)

      The commenter has a point worth noting, imho.

      As far as I'm concerned, this report serves to illustrate exactly who we have been dealing with on the other side of the aisle. Republicans have been gung ho to abolish or neuter IRS because their party is populated at the decision-making level by predators and scavengers alike who understand these figure and want to further exploit to their benefit.

      Mississippi is but a drop in the bucket.

      Imagine what that chart would look like for Texas?

      The place was utterly dark—the oubliette, as I suppose, of their accursed convent.
